Extrauterine epithelioid trophoblastic tumors constitute an extremely rare gestational trophoblastic disease.

Squamous cell carcinoma was suspected after microscopically examining the specimen obtained upon preoperative needle biopsy. After surgery, the tumor was confirmed by microscopic findings and immunohistochemical features.
